Intro to Psych

Summer 2016 Online

Welcome!

It was in my Intro to Psych class fifteen years ago that I fell in love with psychology. Now I am excited to be teaching it. This class will give you a quick "down and dirty" overview of the subject of psychology.


My favorite unit is all about the brain and how it works. From the very first time I read about it I have felt that it is proof that we are "fearfully and wonderfully made." I also love learning styles, theories, memory, research, . . . .


It does not matter what your major is -- you will find any study in psychology a benefit to what you do. You will have many "a ha" moments as you find out why we do some of the things we do. I believe you will begin to understand others better and I hope you will come to appreciate that God loves each and every one of us no matter what our psychological makeup is.


Be sure to start by working through the Jessup Online Student Orientation. Next, please download and thoroughly read our syllabus. Finally, be sure to post a short message in the Introductions Forum. After you complete these tasks, you'll be ready to start Week 1! Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help you in any way.


Blessings,

We are going to have a good time!
